Due diligence is essential in Arizona real estate transactions


It is always wise to know what you are buying. From inspecting eggs in a grocery store, to looking over a new car for scratches, thorough investigation benefits the buyer so that he or she can be confident in the product he or she is buying. Nowhere is this more true than in real estate transactions. Due diligence in a real estate transaction is the act of thoroughly investigating all components of the transaction, including the property, seller and financing.

How can a foreclosure in Arizona be avoided?


It can feel overwhelming to realize that you and your family might be on the brink of losing your home. You may have initially missed just one residential mortgage payment, but then another slipped by and before you knew it, the bank is threatening foreclosure. It is essential for Arizona residents to face the possibility of foreclosure - a lender taking over possession of a homeowner's home due to the homeowner's failure to make mortgage payments - head-on.

Strategies to avoid paying two residential mortgages


Real estate transactions can present a multitude of logistical concerns. An Arizona family who owns a home and is considering moving into a new home may face one common issue: the possibility of two residential mortgages.

Experienced attorneys facilitate Arizona real estate transactions


Pursuing a real estate transaction can be a stressful situation for the parties involved. There are often many complex legal and logistical issues at hand during what may be an emotional time for a person buying or selling a home, or facing a foreclosure.

Multi-million dollar real estate transactions double in last year


Despite the lower home sale numbers in most of the Phoenix area, one region of the housing market has actually seen an increase. Real estate transactions for multimillion-dollar mansions are occurring at nearly twice the rate of last year.

Fewer first-time home buyers flattens housing market numbers


Phoenix's real property sales have taken a shift over the past couple of years, resulting in lower market numbers now. After the housing crash it appears as if the Valley's housing market has stabilized. Median single-family home sales increased in price only 4 percent from last year. The region has seen a small increase in investor-related business and new home sales, but demand in the market still remains low-down 5 percent from last year.

More foreclosures may mean more bank owned property purchases


The Arizona real estate market has seen a rise in foreclosure rates after a recent lull. The increased numbers may result in more bank owned property purchasesthat could translate to good opportunities for homebuyers in the area but may be stressing more mortgagors than before.

The number of people involved in a short sale declines


The old saying that it's wise to purchase real estate because they're not making any more of it is beginning to be taken seriously in Arizona as the overall economy is getting better. Because mortgage rates are declining and the financial circumstances of many is improving, bigger and costlier homes are selling in the state. The median cost for certain homes is on the rise in comparison with several months ago.

Understanding the complexities of a real estate transaction


There are multiple ways for Arizonans to purchase real estate. Typically, potential buyers work with a real estate agent to find a home and, once that is accomplished, to help them with the purchase agreement. Others, though, decide to purchase real estate directly from a homeowner without the intervention of a real estate agent. In either case, it may be best for those considering purchasing real estate to consult with an experienced attorney, as failing to do so could result in unwanted consequences and, potentially, litigation.
